Are any of us really unique in this world?
The 21st Century is an age when individuality lives at the mercy of big data. Any of us can become iconic, larger-than-life figures in society; any of us can become relegated to a concept, a statistic. The Anonymity series by Sheng Xiao is a reflection of life in today’s society.
Whereas traditional portraiture reflects on the circumstance and legacy of the individual patron, this series by Sheng are portraits of none of us and all of us. The yare portraits of our anonymity.
